Finding my mojo


Seems I've reclaimed my sewing mojo.  

Don't worry.  They are not for this bed.  They are for the living room couch.  This room just has better light for photographing.


I've never made pillows before but these came together quickly Monday afternoon.  I don't know what's up with me and the purple.  I generally don't like purple.   But I'm kinda diggin' on it lately.


These blocks are for Mommymae for A Notion or Two.  She's making a king sized quilt with all of the completed blocks.  Can't wait to see the final result.


And guess what!

I mopped today.

I lead a very exciting life.

LOVE the cushions and also the little dachshund on the block! Well done mopping.. I hate mopping so certainly a big achievement. You have mopped AND made such lovely cushions? you should be proud of yourself! <3

Tine said...

The cushions are great! I like purple a lot :) I know a lot of people don't so to see you "coming around" is pretty cool!

Amber said...

If you mopped, that must mean you're about to baste a quilt! Sounds like good mojo to me, too!
I've been digging purple a lot lately, too. I think it's because of the purples showing up in fabric prints lately!

Love the pillows, the loopies are so frivolous and fun! The blocks are yummy too. You must have your Mojo back if you're mopping, will you be basting something soon?

the quilting on those pillows is AWESOME!!
I'll make ya' a deal--you teach me how to free motion quilt and I'll mop your floors!

Elissa said...

awesome. awe. some.

Elissa said...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE your pillows. They look so full and substantial. My pillows usually seem too thin. I love the quilting too! I want to learn to do that.

beth said...

Moppping is up at the top of the list at my house too....:/...not.

Annette said...

I am definitely jealous. Of your Innocent Crush and your mopped floor!

Katherine said...

Love those cushions - especially the variegated thread and the quilting - gives it so much lovely texture.

Had to grin when I read that you mopped. I'm still holding out... ;o)

Rachel said...

You sure do lead an exciting life - and, no, I'm not being sarcastic. I sit at work and (when I'm not too busy) dream about all the things I could be doing at home! My floors need to be mopped too.

I love your pillows...and the quilt blocks. That little daschund is just too cute!

Trudi said...

Fantastic pillows :) Yayyyy Mopping! Doesn't that mean more sewing mojo for layering and basting? Gotta love that mojo! (got any spare?)

jodi@Pleasant-Home said...

Love the quilting on your pillows! I must try that.

DeeRoo said...

Ack...grey....I love it!:) Wouldn't those loopies be great on a purse?!! Gonna have to try that.

I've decided that I need another sewing machine so I can leave my darning foot on one of them and my walking foot on the other then I wouldn't have any excuse not to FMQ!

I vacumned the kitchen this morning...broke a needle, it flicked onto my face and I thought on the floor...came home from worked and sewed for about an hour and found it right there in front of me on the table! Phew!!

So...is that Thing 2's bed?:)

Rach Fairchild said...

Great pillows. I love the quilting on them! I am so procrastinating making my friends pillows. I need them done by next week but my crochetting mojo is back, not my sewing mojo. Can you send some my way? :)

brown robin said...

Oh goody! I love it when friends get in the sewing groove. Especially love all the "thread drawing" and of course, your combos of fabrics... you're so good at that.

Stephanie D. said...

Mopping? I remember mopping....

Kim said...

Hey Dana is my MoJo at your house?
I'll be darned if I can find it!

Mopping? what's that?

Happy sewing!

Em said...

I love the circular quilting pattern and how you fussy cut, "swim"! Fabulous projects!!!!

Carol said...

Beautiful pillows!! Did you free motion quilt w/variegated thread or did you follow a pattern for the quilting - it's lovely!!

amylouwho said...

I love the pebble quilting! Is that what the kids are calling it these days?

I mopped today too!

corinnea said...
